Chihuahua/dashhound
Male 6 months
Not sure what's wrong with his claws is this normal?
He's always itching his ears not sure if related
I have fed him from day 1 small dog food not puppy food and meat due to previous owners just put him on it at 8 weeks of age
back paws dont seem to be too much affected accept they are white
claws were cut after the black/brown appeared
He's always licking his paws
What could it be?
He is so happy and joyful always drinks eat and loves walking to the shop and back he isn't showing any sign of pain
Thank you so much

To be honest, I've no idea - could it be leukonychia - which is the cause of the little white spots we sometimes get on our own nails?

I'd be a bit more concerned about the scratching though. Have you tried to resolve that?

Im going to apply some flea treatment as i am a day behind see if this resolves it within the next week if not a vet it is :)
do the brown bits appear to be normal on his claws?

I really couldn't say about the claws. But for the itching, look at the end of his back near his tail. If you find any black specks, drop them on to a wet piece of white tissue. If the sort of bleed out a,rusty brown colour, fleas are present.

What sort of food is he on, that can cause skin irritation.
